For over 60 years, Queen Elizabeth II has shown her concern for those in the UK, around the world, around her family. It wouldn't be uncharacteristic for her, and Prince Charles, to phone Kate seeking personal information on the Mother-to-be.
In walks two Australian radio hosts with their rendition of the voices of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles and "interviewing" two nurses at King Edward VII Hospital where Kate was being cared for. That interview was broadcast to the world without the Australian Radio station seeking permission. One nurse became so distraught of what happened, manipulated so easily by
The Public was drawn into becoming active participants because Mel Greig and Michael Christian were just doing what they do best, hoaxes, at the expense of others.
In the real world, as least here in Canada, our Privacy Rights are protected to the hilt unless you're the Leader of the Opposition and one Translink ticket short. Those two Australian
Greig and Christian may have seen themselves spring-boarding from obscurity to fame, as did Orson Welles' "War of the Worlds" which worked in 1938 for him, but not now. The News back then was controlled by the few, but today, with the advent of the Internet, anyone can be a publisher.
What about the consequences for the Australian Radio station, and their owners?
Who would ever want to pay the station for advertising products, projecting an image, knowing in advance that their good name would always be associated with the lose canons Managers of 2DayFM where they displayed the lowest form of insensitivity towards others, which resulted in a death?
The Australian Communications Authority (ACMA) is taking action in regards to 2DayFM because of what may be violations of broadcasting license conditions and the Commercial Radio Codes of Practice
Enter Christy into the mix, involving ..... yet another Australian DJ.
Christy Clark will ALWAYS attract cheap attention, as an MLA, as a Minister, as a Mother, as a proponent in the Sale of BC Rail, as a Divorcee, as a Single Mom, as a Vancouver Mayor hopeful, as a DJ, a Premier of the Province of British Columbia and let's not forget her beaming "Royal lineage" of "Queen" of Photo Ops.
Last week, the Premier of the Province of British Columbia was invited to speak on JetFM, a radio station in Courtenay, with Australian ExPat "Drex" as the host. One participant from his audience, supposedly, sent in a rude and inappropriate question. The listener was named as ..... "Andrew" by Drex during his introduction to the Premier. We don't know if "Andrew" exists, or ......... not...... or if he too is an Expat. Drex, backed by JetFM, set the stage, directed the role players, manipulated the guest which must have been like taking candy from a Baby.
The Premier of BC didn't deserve to have the "MILF" question tossed at her to chew on, her handlers, the high priced Press Secretary, should have stepped in and controlled her inner spirit and yearnings to
JetFM, like 2DayFM, must have been soaring because of their interview with Christy, but neither the current BC Government, nor the next Government, if it's Adrian Dix, will touch the Courtenay Radio station, and it's sibling sister stations with a ten foot pole. Not a single dime of taxpayers dollars will be funneled to them, for advertising during the provincial election.
